Islanders claim goaltender Berube off waivers

by NHL.com Staff

The New York Islanders on Tuesday claimed goaltender Jean-Francois Berube off waivers from the Los Angeles Kings.

Berube, 24, led the Kings' American Hockey League affiliate in Manchester to a Calder Cup championship last season. He won 37 games in the regular season with a 2.18 goals-against average and .913 save percentage, and 13 games in the postseason.

He had 28 wins with a 2.37 GAA and .913 save percentage for the Monarchs the previous season.

Berube was a fourth-round pick (No. 95) in the 2009 NHL Draft.

The Islanders, who open the season Friday against the Chicago Blackhawks at Barclays Center (7:30 p.m., NHLN), have Jaroslav Halak and Thomas Greiss as goaltenders on their roster. Halak is questionable for the opener with an upper-body injury.
